Never been to cairns before I had no idea where the main city was and how far we would be from it. We looked around and found this hotel, what a joy, we stayed for two nites. We had a choice of a hotel room or a apartment, we chose the apartment. Everything was clean and up to scratch. And...

Not sure about the other reviews on here, giving this place a 'fair' rating, the 1 bedroom apartment is so luxurious, and I'm a PICKY hotelier! Love it, would live here if I could, the bathroom is like something out of a 5 star hotel in Thailand or Bali, true luxury for a pittance! Maybe the hotel rooms are dated,...

Stayed there for three nights in March. Certainly not luxury accommodation, but you're not paying top dollar, so a fair value for the rate. Not a lot of attention paid to details - the pool needs some help, for instance, it wasn't completely clean. Wear and tear showing on the property- rust stains in the pool and on tables and...

Was a nice place to stay in cairns, close to facilities and had a nice pool. Walking distance to main shopping centre and lots of restaurants nearby, close to the waterfront with views of the ocean would stay here again if up this way

It has potential although there were plenty of things they could and probably should do better. I'll start with the positives, the pool area and pool are great! We spent all day there on one of our days. We lazed around on the sun lounges, cooled off in the pool which has great shade and also brought down drinks and...

Very comfortable and roomy apartment with a nice pool, balcony and great laundry facilities in the unit. I was not sure it had a shower but it did. Efficient layout. Excellent instructions from the management for our late arrival. A bit of a hike to the center but not bad at all.

Stayed three nights after checking out of the Novatel. We wanted something less busy and more roomy. Hello 201 Lake Street. We booked a one bedroom apt and our unit provided much more space than we hoped for. Lovely floor plan with separate bedroom, modern appliances including washer, dryer, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and large TV. The AC worked beautifully and...

We stayed here recently and booked a hotel room to save on cost as we didn't need an apartment. What we didn't realise was there was none of the normal facilities available for this type of 4 star rating. No laundry facilities on site paid or otherwise or drink/snack vending machine. The room was a bit run down, chipped and...

Stayed only for only 3 days to attend a course - so was perfect. Easy walk to the Esplanade and a 10 - 12 min walk back into town. Having a washing machine and kitchen was really handy. Lovely set out and clean, modern furniture and homewares. The only complaint was that the shutters in the bedroom don't close sufficiantly...
